Our History

We are older than we look…

1740

At the age of 21, Thomas Witherby founds the company in Exchange Alley. He is already famed for his exceptional handwriting and clients call upon his calligraphic skills for wills, marriage settlements, and articles of agreement between merchants.

1860

A printing business in Holborn is acquired and Witherbys offer letterpress printing for the first time.

1941

Our premises become a casualty of the Blitz and is entirely destroyed on the 10th May.

1949

The Holborn factory is back to full health after losing everything during the Second World War.

1965

We move to a newly constructed building in Clerkenwell.

2010

Another move due to expansion, this time we find and refurbish a modern building in Tottenham.

2013

We add to our digital printing capabilities by acquiring the well-respected digital house - Abacus. In the same year, we had a celebrity visit from Gary Lineker while tracing his ancestors for the BBC program “Who do you think you are”.

2020

We join the Precision Proco Group to combine our expertise and heritage with one of the industry's leading innovators in print and marketing operations.
